  1. INTER-DISCIPLINARY STUDIES 2010 Tan Hui Ming [Leader] Foo Tze Han Grady Ng Ryan Lim Class 2O1

  2. Location of Beach Resort Noordin Beach

  3. Resort Map

  4. A Comparison

  5. Location • Noordin Beach • Texture of sand is more resistant to wind and water erosion • Waves are weaker • Problem of coastal flooding relatively minor • Already existent seawalls • Relatively undeveloped

  6. PART I Green Technologies

  7. Preventive Measures • Hard Engineering Method: • GABIONS • Easily-Constructed • Fairly Inexpensive

  8. Preventive Measures • Soft Engineering Methods: • BEACH NOURISHMENT • Used in tangent with gabions • Cost-Effective • Long-Term Sustainability

  9. Green Technology • Harness solar energy using active solar techniques • Install solar panels on rooftops where possible – ensure that size is just right to maximize energy production • Excess energy can be stored for later use

  10. Green Technology • Taping into wind energy as supplementary source • Solar energy may not be constant; must to have a backup source • Located near the shores of Kekek Quarry • Does not interfere with shipping lanes • Closer to resort

  11. Green Technology • Offshore windfarm • Largely increase energy output as compared to onshore windfarm • Unreliabilty of wind is negligible as wind energy is only alternative source

  12. Green Technology • Beach front Resort Facilities: • Gym • Spa • Infinity Edge Pool • Restaurants • General Resort Reception

  13. Green Technology • Main facilities • Replacement of incandescent light bulbs to Eco-friendly compact fluorescent • Installation of water-saving toilets • Auto-Detecting Lights • Utilisation of recycled glass and steel for construction

  14. Green Technology • Restaurants / Buffets to cater organic food / local produce • Usage of compost to fertilise decorative plants • Utilize plants which require minimal water intake and are appealing to the eye • Drop watering system to water plants

  15. Green Technology • Villas • Replacement of incandescent light bulbs to Eco-friendly compact fluorescent • Replacement of television/refrigerator/air-conditioner to energy efficient  model • Installation of recycling receptacles per level [Paper/Bottles/Cans] • Eco-friendly textiles for the bed/curtains etc.

  16. Green Technology • Card storer can be used dually to switch off lights and electricity [When a guest leaves the room and takes his card/The lights automatically switch off and the visitor doesn’t have to worry about forgetting to do so] • Biodegradable cleaning products [No phosphates/chemicals which are harmful]

  17. Green Technology • Transport vehicles around island • Using electric cars • Energy to recharge battery can be obtained from excess solar or wind power, cutting down reliance on burning on fossil fuel • Island is relatively small, and hence issues of distance not a problem

  18. PART 2 Green living practices

  19. Green Living Practices • Attractive pamphlets on Green Living Practices to be situated at the reception/guest room • Discourage smoking at hotels, charge more for smoking rooms • Waste minimization – e.g goods that the hotel receive should be sent in minimal packaging, hotel can convert food waste to biofuels,

  20. Green Living Practices • Encourage trekking / cycling with cheap bicycle rentals offered • Instead of washing bed linen/bedsheets everyday, the resort can instead have a fixed washing schedule of around 2 to 4 days intervals, or only wash at the guest’s request.

  21. Green Living Practices • Encourage trekking / cycling with cheap bicycle rentals offered • Instead of washing bed linen/bedsheets everyday, the resort can instead have a fixed washing schedule of around 2 to 4 days intervals, or only wash at the guest’s request.

  22. Green Living Practices • Towels to be washed at a lower temperature – washing at 40 degrees instead of 60 degrees apparently uses lower energy. In addition, room cleaning only to collect towels that guests wish for them to be washed, or charge for towel-cleaning services. • Avoid excessive exterior lighting of the hotel, especially at night, or dim external lights.

  23. Green Living Practices • Make non-air conditioned rooms cheaper – encourage guests to sleep in a non air-conditioned environment which reduces electricity costs. • Hotel can partially or totally absorb the cost of bicycle rentals, which in turn encourages tourists to use the bicycle over taking vehicles to get to the attractions.
